BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price had his best day at practice Friday, according to coach Michel Therrien, but his status remains day-to-day in his recovery from a lower-body injury he aggravated playing for Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Price has missed eight NHL games since his return from the Olympics; the Canadiens are 3-4-1 and have allowed 28 goals in his absence.

"Watching how he's played goal since the start of the season and seeing how he played at the Olympics, we can say he's one of the best goalies in the National Hockey League," Therrien said. "When you lose your best player it's going to have an effect on you.

"We can't use that as an excuse; we have no excuses on our team. But Carey is our best player and one that is very important. Any team that loses its No. 1 goalie for a period of time is going to be affected."


Islanders' Tavares reaches out to young fan

Living in Winnipeg, 11-year-old Jake Lotocki tends to stick out from time to time. That happens when you're a die-hard New York Islanders fan in the middle of Winnipeg Jets country.

Lotocki was wearing the jersey of his favorite player, Islanders captain John Tavares, when he and his family went to MTS Centre on March 4 to watch the Islanders' win 3-2 against Winnipeg. Tavares, out for the season due to a knee injury sustained during the 2014 Sochi Olympics, isn't traveling with the team, but Lotocki's appreciation for his favorite player only grew after he was jeered that night for wearing the Islanders jersey.

Two days later the Islanders were in Vancouver preparing for a game against the Canucks when Tavares called Kimber Auerbach, the Islanders' director of communications.

"During the game I got a call from [Tavares] saying, 'Did you read this story about the kid in Winnipeg?'" Auerbach said. "I read the story and he texted me back saying he wanted to do something."

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

For Brody Sutter of the American Hockey League's Charlotte Checkers, an affinity for the game is all in the family.

Currently in his second year with the Carolina Hurricanes' top affiliate, Brody is part of the second generation of one of the most renowned families in NHL history. His father, Duane, and uncles Brent, Brian, Rich, Ron and Darryl collectively played in almost 5,000 NHL games between 1976 and 2001 and have remained active in the League in various coaching, scouting and managerial capacities.

Brody was born in Calgary but raised in southern Florida, where his father, a four-time Stanley Cup champion with the New York Islanders and current scout for the Edmonton Oilers, was a member of the Florida Panthers' coaching staff.

Former NHL forward Petr Nedved, who has spent the past seven seasons playing in Europe, has retired from professional hockey at age 42.

Avalanche's MacKinnon taking success in stride

Friday, 03.14.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Rick Sadowski  -  NHL.com Correspondent

DENVER -- The Colorado Avalanche were convinced they were getting someone very special when they selected forward Nathan MacKinnon with the first pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

"We wanted somebody who was not only a good hockey player but someone who would entertain our fans and give them a good reason to come and watch our games," said coach Patrick Roy, who also serves as the Avalanche vice president of hockey operations.

Fans haven't been disappointed. The Avalanche have been one of the surprise teams in the NHL. Entering action Thursday, they sat second in the Central Division and third in the Western Conference with a 43-18-5 record. After finishing 29th in the overall standings a year ago, they are in line for their first Stanley Cup Playoff appearance since 2010.

The play of MacKinnon, who turned 18 on Sept. 1, has been a major factor in Colorado's improvement. He leads NHL rookies in goals (22), assists (29) and points (51), had a 13-game scoring streak to break Wayne Gretzky's 1979-80 record for an 18-year-old, and is a leading candidate for the Calder Trophy.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
